Why would someone want to contribute icons to a fork of Emacs (running
only on non-free software) instead of the main line?

It seems a bit out of place to do this work downstream when it seems
more sensible to do this in Emacs itself.

Emacs (as well as the GNU project) are labelled "free software" by the
FSF.  It seems a bit out of place to try recruiting people for
improving a fork for a proprietary platform on the official Emacs help
mailing list.

Is there a reason why you don't want to work on improving the icons in
Emacs proper?
